Overview

Have you ever asked your students "Are you listening?" and felt uneasy that their response didn't distinguish listening from hearing? We expect children to spend fifty percent or more of their school day engaged in listening-comprehension activities, yet despite today's emphasis on skills-building in the language arts, most literacy curricula ignore the teaching of this crucial skill. Thanks to Listen Hear!, that's about to change.

Michael Opitz and Matthew Zbaracki recognize that teachers have their hands full with reading and writing standards; that's why they've designed Listen Hear! as a handy, friendly resource full of fresh teaching strategies that help you fold multidimensional listening comprehension instruction snugly into your existing reading and read-aloud lessons-without sacrificing room in your crowded curriculum.

Listen Hear! gives you everything you need to start teaching listening tomorrow:

  • the research and rationale for teaching it
  • reproducible forms
  • charts that show you at a glance which skills each strategy enhances
  • ists of contemporary children's literature to use in conjunction with the strategies
  • and practical tips for assessment.

Thanks to Opitz and Zbaracki, you'll be at the forefront as listening comprehension takes its place in the language arts curriculum, confident that when you ask a student "Are you listening?" the answer will be a definitive "Yes."
